A Muslim killed in DRC but they are defaming Kenya

Reader comment on item: "How Dare You Defame Islam"

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Jan 16, 2023 at 03:50

Dear Dr Pipes, add one more country to the list of countries where Muslims kill: democratic republic of Congo. Congo is a 95% Christian country but in one state of Congo Muslim are in majority. As every where else in the world, in this province also Muslims are murdering others. Yesterday our dear Muslim brothers bombed a church in North Kivu in Congo and killed 10 people. How nice of Muslim!

I must add that I found nothing about DRC that indicates that it is a Christian theocracy. Its constitution reads like what a good constitution should read like; freedom, democracy, citizenship etc etc. But Muslims like to kill just because they don't have a theocracy. And, our planet conjures up excuses for them. Go figure.

Now comes the kickers. The police in DRC arrested a Muslim brother from Kenya for the above church murders. The newspapers are saying, "A Kenyan was arrested... " I say that the arrested guy was a Muslim Kenyan. Why defame Kenya for a Muslims crime? Let us speak the big truth using fewest words: A Muslim was arrested for the murder of ten in DRC.

This sounds better. It does not unnecessarily blame Kenya. This guy did not have to be a Kenyan to kill. In all probability, he had to be a Muslim to kill-- any one from dar-ul-islam. So, let us be truthful.

Submitting....
